In the modern Heathen movement everything is alive. From the breeze at our backs to the ground beneath our feet we live in a world filled with spirits. Oceans roar, forests stretch, and electricity hums every second as life dances through it all.

Writer Danny Smith shares this interview he conducted with an “otherkin”. I couldn’t help but to notice that the ‘kin states that he worships Corellon, God of the Elves – a deity…

MP for the Independence Party Árni Johnsen arranged for the relocation of a 30-ton boulder, which he believes is home to three generations of elves, from southwest Iceland to his home Höfðaból in the Westman Islands today.

Arni first encountered the elves’ dwelling when he was in a serious car accident in January 2010. His car overturned and landed beside the boulder.

“I had Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir, a specialist in the affairs of elves, come look at the boulder with me,” recollected Árni. “It was incredible, she had never met three generations of elves in the same boulder before…She said an elderly couple lives on the upper floor but a young couple with three children on the lower floor.”

From The Vice Guide to Sex:

Iceland is a country where the majority of people believe so firmly in elves extreme measures are taken to avoid upsetting them. Sometimes that means changing a road’s path to avoid elven territory, for Hallgerdur Hallgrímsdóttir, it means boning them. Hallgerdur claims many Icelanders have been doing elves in secret for centuries. There’s even a myth covering the inter-hominid couplings. Hallgerdur receives a lot of flack from her countrymen for spilling the beans on elf sex, so we hope you appreciate her act of smutty treason. Although Hallgerdur has a boyfriend now, she recently claimed that “sex with humans is boring”.

In her blog she goes into great detail about her experience sexing it up with elves. Here’s an excerpt: “Elf sex is possibly the safest sex on earth. They don’t carry sexually transmitted diseases and you cant get pregnant or make an Elverine pregnant unless you both want to, which is not unheard of. And YES there are female elves, elverines. And they’re HOT HOT HOT, even to girls. That reminds me: All elves are bisexual, but guys and girls not ready for some same sex action don’t worry, no elf will do anything you don’t want to. They can sense your longings and not-longings.”
